root@KittensTest:/var/www/Bugzilla/bugzilla-4.2.1# ./testserver.pl http://localhost/Bugzilla/bugzilla-4.2.1
TEST-OK Webserver is running under group id in $webservergroup.
TEST-OK Got padlock picture.
TEST-FAILED Webserver is fetching rather than executing CGI files.
Check the AddHandler statement in your httpd.conf file.

Well then. httpd.conf (from here[]):

<Directory /var/www/Bugzilla/bugzilla-4.2.1>
AddHandler cgi-script .cgi .pl
Options +Indexes +Includes +ExecCGI
DirectoryIndex index.cgi
AllowOverride Limit FileInfo Indexes

What am I doing wrong? I'm pretty new to this (first Bugzilla install), so I'll appreciate explanation.


Like I said, I'm new at this. Turns out I was doing everything right, I just needed to restart Apache.
